you can see still evidence markers here at the intersection of jacqueline and escuela parkway. to give you more information on the roads that are still shut down that's jacklin road between arizona and campbell. those are still blocked. again, police are still here on scene. we are told a public information officer should be here -- actually he just arrived and is handing out information for us and i just got a new press release regarding this information here. milpitas police say they stopped a vehicle for a moving violation. officer exited the patrol car and the suspect exited his car and fired shots at the officer. the officer was able to return fire but then the suspect ran away from the scene and his vehicle or car is still missing. now, the officer was not shot. but he did suffer minor injuries during the incident. and the officer did not require medical attention. it's still unknown if the suspect was shot. now, officers and detectives say that the investigation is
ongoing. the public information officer just got here. we just got this information here. we are going to do an interview with him hopefully we can get more details. roads still blocked. police still in the area. we'll bring you more updates as we get them. live in milpitas, cate caugiran, cbs 5. >> we will get back to you later in the show, too. 6:33 now. a standoff at treasure island is finally over. people living in the area were not able to get on or off the island for nearly 7 hours all morning all night long. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington in san francisco. she has the latest on what's been a long ordeal. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the standoff is over. the suspect is dead and ramps to treasure island are in the process of being reopened. now, that suspect died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. this all started last night at around 11:00 when police attempted to pull him over in downtown san francisco. they say that he was driving a stolen car. he wouldn't stop and let officers on a chase over the bay bridge and was firing at
officers although none of them was hurt. he finally pulled over on the treasure island off-ramp. now, this shut down treasure island for more than 6 hours. people could not get on or off. that man brandished his weapon and then held it to his head. a crisis negotiation team tried to get him to surrender and during that standoff police used two flash-bangs. again nobody was allowed on or off the island so some of those residents were assisted by the red cross at the transbay bus terminal. police believe that this was their suspect 29-year-old duncan philips. philips is also a suspect in a robbery that happened in benicia on tuesday. so again the standoff is over. people can finally get back on and off of treasure island. and earlier this morning, when this was all happening, it did not affect traffic even though the off-ramps were closed. at this point as people are coming into the city it's getting more congested but again, everything is back open.
in san francisco, elissa harrington, cbs 5. it didn't affect traffic on the bay bridge but it did go in and out of treasure island. >> off-ramps are blocked as you said completely overnight for almost 7 hours so the only real lasting impact in all this is they had to turn on the metering lights at 5:52. that's a little bit earlier than usual. so that means the backups began a little earlier. so if it's stacking up to the macarthur maze at 6:35. once again, you can use the treasure island off-ramps back open back to normal and fortunately when the standoff was going on, it never really caused any major delay on the main lines of the freeway because they never had to shut anything down. it was only a few police cars there blocking the treasure island ramp.
just take a quick look, police activity that cate just mentioned the officer-involved shooting jacklin road closed between arizona and campbell. here's brian with the forecast. >> thank you. yesterday morning talking about the fog yesterday, today the potential for rain. we start off with widespread but generally light fog around the bay area today. and a lot of high clouds up top. the numbers now as we gaze toward the golden gate bridge, 47 degrees at concord, oakland 54, at the airport 52, santa rosa 52 degrees. and out the door had morning as a result, a little fog along the coast. gale warnings posted tonight and tomorrow, wind advisories in the bay area. it will get windy and wet and also going to be coming from
that. forecast highs today nice and mild, subtropical source. temperatures in the mid-60s today under mostly cloudy skies. it's in the extended forecast that we get rain on wednesday and then a stronger system on thursday, on friday, on saturday. so heavy rains, powerful winds will be with us right through saturday. frank, michelle? >> all right. thank you. an east bay man is charged with attempted murder for trying to hang his girlfriend from a tree in his backyard. this happened on sunday night. police tell us the woman's hands were tied behind her back and there was a noose around her neck. but police say when her boyfriend went inside to get a cigarette she got her cell phone out of her pocket and called 911. >> he was intent on killing her. >> yes. he told her he was going to hang her. >> 31-year-old daniel howard used her as a shield when police confronted him. they say he pushed her down and

experience, but a number of people are making this big purchase online now. c-net's brian cooley is here with some tips on how to do it right. buying a tv used to be an in store experience but now people are buying them online. cnet editor-at-large brian cooley has tips on that. >> it's a daunting task. >> but you want to see it touch it feel it play with it... and if you buy it online you don't know what you get. >> here are the two ways people buy tvs. first they look at the picture like now. then they go around the side
and want to see how thin it is. >> you do the finger test. it's only half inch that's cool. so we buy them from two angles and you want to go to the store to see that. absolutely, i understand that. but -- this is not something retailers want to hear. people are showrooming. they are going to do their research online, we of course have a lot of reviews on tvs at cnet, any tv you're interested in. they go to the store, look at the picture, do i like it? then they will look at the case, see if it's thin after they see the reviews and then they buy it online, maybe even while standing in the store. retailers hate that. >> so they are using their smartphone. >> buying it on amazon. >> and getting information from the people there. >> sometimes you may buy it owe online store because you don't want to bring it home of the if you have to return it how do
you ship it back? some return policies are good. amazon and big stores are good about saying easy, go here, click this link, we'll generate a return label, stick it on and deduct it from your return. >> if you are getting shipped a 60" tv are you afraid it's going to come in a damaged package. not anymore. i have had a lot of tvs shipped to my office, my house, they always arrive in good shape. these had to get shipped from japan or china and they came in the same basic box so they got shipped around to the different stores even individually in those boxes. so those are shipping boxes. obviously damage is possible with anything you buy online but i wouldn't be concerned about it. those return policies are key to be aware of because in case you have to return it you may be able to return it in store if you buy it at bestbuy.com. check the total price. shipping and tax, don't be fooled by just the actual price. that's simple. but some folks forget it's the total price you care about and wherever you are at the store or online, they slip cables into your cart and you kind of
don't notice? uncheck those. check those. $30, $40. that's a ripoff for cables. should be about $8 for an hdmi cable. >> how big is your tv? >> i buy them when a find them cheap. mine are nonname brands. i don't have any big name brands. i buy them at office supply stores. great price especially at the holidays. >> from the pro. you can find more brian cooley's tech watch segments on cbssf.com/mornings. thank you, brian. michelle? thank you. well, hewlett-packard shareholders taking company executives to federal court. here now is jason brooks with kcbs and cbsmoneywatch.com. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, michelle. you can see it's coming when hp announced its deal for its uk company was overpriced by $5 billion accusing the company of
